AquaFun is a mixture of swimming, gymnastics and dancing. And these are also the basics of synchronised swimming. Find out how to give it a try.
AquaFun is for 7-13 year olds and is all about learning the basics of synchronised swimming.
The focus is on fun and you’ll be able to put your dance moves to good use in the water.
What sort of things will I learn?
The two most important moves that you will be taught in AquaFun are sculling and the eggbeater. These are vital to synchro:
- Sculls are the hand movements that propel the body and are the most essential part of synchronised swimming.
- Eggbeater is a form of treading water that allows you to remain stable above the water while leaving the hands free to perform strokes. Swimmers can also perform ‘boosts’, where they use their legs to propel themselves out of the water.
